Ideal Hostel Owner Remanded Over Land Sale Forgery Case

A prominent local businessman, Robert Twinomujuni, has been detained in Luzira Prisons after being accused of falsifying a land sale agreement in Ntungamo District, located in the southwest region.

Twinomujuni, the proprietor of Ideal Hostels, was charged at Buganda Road Magistrate’s Court following his arrest in Kampala. The charges against him include fabricating a land sale agreement, presenting a false document, and forging acknowledgment receipts and national identity cards.

He is co-accused with Samson Arinaitwe, a resident of Kabale, neighboring Ntungamo, who remains at large according to the state.

During the court proceedings, Chief Magistrate Ronald Kayizzi ordered Twinomujuni's remand until the upcoming Thursday for further consideration of his bail application. The defense presented five sureties, but the prosecution requested time to verify their authenticity, citing the need to prevent potential fraud.

Twinomujuni, citing health issues, sought bail. The court noted that similar charges were already pending in Mbarara High Court, which has jurisdiction over Ntungamo.

The alleged disputed land reportedly belongs to relatives of influential figures from Ruhama constituency in Ntungamo District, prompting investigations into possible mismanagement by law enforcement officials.

The charges against Arinaitwe and Twinomujuni involve forgery of a land sale agreement, fraudulent presentation of a forged document, and falsification of acknowledgment receipts and identity cards. The prosecution asserts that they conspired to defraud individuals of their interests in land in Ntungamo District.
